Meet Your Hosts – Shane Murphy

Shane comes to iQ Trivia from the Royal Australian Navy, but he’s got plenty of talents that go beyond being a sailor.

He’s also a lion tamer, Spitfire pilot, Elvis impersonator, bodyguard for the Dalai Lama, and he’s organising a petition to get Queanbeyan to host the 2024 Olympics where he will represent Australia in Chess Boxing.

You can catch him every Monday at 7:00 at Walt & Burley on the Kingston Foreshore.

Meet Your Hosts – Davey J

Davey J, is ready to cast off and set sail with you on the Seven Seas of Knowledge. A radio host, film-maker, performer, sports-star, rock-god and general bon vivant, Davey J will have you scratching your heads, begging for clues and smacking your head and saying “of course” when you hear the answer.

So welcome aboard for a journey of trivial discovery and high seas adventure.


When he’s not hosting trivia, Davey is also the host of The Big Gee Up on 2XX (98.3FM) on Saturday mornings.

Also, sometimes he dances to the music questions.

Meet Your Hosts – Tammy Paks

Tammy Paks is a drag princess, entertainer, hostess, singer, actress, and now hosts iQ Trivia as Canberra’s first and only Drag Trivia Show where the questions are a little more risque than usual.

Miss Paks has performed at venues across the ACT and Sydney.  Her salacious attitude, witty parodies, and frequent usage of the word “moist”, are bound to bedazzle and delight audiences.

You can take in Tammy’s weekly iQ Trivia show at Polit Bar in Manuka every Wednesday at 8pm.

(By the way, players are not expected to come in drag, but if the mood strikes you, you are welcome to dress a little differently!)

Meet Your Hosts – Joe Podplesky

Originally from California, Joe slept through high school, and later served in the Marines to get a University degree.  But after years of guarding embassies all around the world, he thought he would rather live in a country where the wildlife is constantly trying to kill you, and settled in Canberra, even going so far as marrying a local.

Now Sergeant Joe hosts iQ Trivia while planning his next career move as a TIE Fighter Pilot for the Galactic Empire.

Joe hosts a regular show every Tuesday at 7:30pm at the Belconnen Raiders Club in Holt.
